Partners Pharmacy is committed to providing senior living clients with current information about Medicare programs.
All Medicare beneficiaries are eligible for a Medicare prescription benefit, referred to as Medicare Part D. Beneficiaries are required to enroll in a Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) or Medicare Advantage (PPO; Part C) plan. Everyone with Medicare, regardless of income, health status or prescription drugs used, can obtain prescription drug coverage.
Partners supports communities and residents with Medicare Part D assistance in a compliant and cost-effective manner, promoting Medicare Part D formulary compliance and speeding prior authorizations, thereby reducing drug costs and improving staff efficiency.
Long-term care and assisted living residents who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid benefits are facing new challenges in today’s market, such as formulary management. Partners Pharmacy is a leader in assisting facilities with streamlined processes for Medicare Part D utilization and reduced administrative steps and time required by facility staffs and physicians to manage multiple-payer formularies.
